Air dock leveler

Air-powered dock levelers

Nordock guarantees these products will outperform all others on the market.

Built for strength: Air dock levelers are manufactured in Canada and tested to withstand impact and handle the heaviest loads, with a 33% deck-to-beam weld ratio and up to 15-20% heavier than traditional dock levelers.

Center deck support that lasts: High-quality, consistent placement of welds and proper center deck support allows for even weight distribution throughout the hydraulic dock leveler.

No pinch points: The open lug design on the front hinge allows debris to pass straight through the dock, eliminating pinch points that cause serious structural damage to other dock levelers.

Premium safety: Open and close the air dock leveler with a push of a button, unlike mechanical dock levelers which require workers to manually open and close the dock lip, causing workplace injuries to the neck, shoulders and back.


Each air-powered dock leveler shields the air bag over 99% of the time

Air bag protected over 99% of the time

A fully-protected single chamber air bag activation system shields the air bag from outside contamination over 99% of the time. In addition, Nordock’s single chamber balanced design reduces material, redundant air chambers and unwanted seams to eliminate unnecessary friction.

Unique open lug design eliminates pinch points

Nordock products are guaranteed to outperform all others on the market, and these dock levelers are no exception. Their unique open lug design on the front lip eliminates pinch points by allowing debris to pass straight through the dock leveler. Pinch points are often the cause of serious structural damage to traditional dock levelers, often leading to frequent maintenance and high repair costs. The open lug design is standard on all models except the Constructor series.

Constructed to support the heaviest loads in demanding applications

The majority of dock levelers that are available on the market use inconsistent spot welds on one side of the hinge that provides significantly insufficient support to the center deck. Nordock’s air-powered dock leveler lips use consistent 4″ welds that encompass both sides of every hinge, delivering superior center deck support that is able to handle the heaviest loads.
